Protocols and Recipes

Below are protocols and recipes used in Blattner lab.


*E. coli Total RNA Labeling for High Density Oligonucleotide Array [PDF]
Labeling E. coli total RNA for high density oligonuceotide array like Affymetrix E. coli antisense genome array. [updated/corrected 05/30/2007]

*E. coli Total RNA Isolation [PDF]

* Spotted array Hybridization [PDF]
Hybridize CyDye-dUTP labeled probes to E. coli microarray printed on poly-lysine coated slide (provided by GEC) using Sigma ArrayHyb Buffer. [updated 02/10/2002]


* Tn5 Mutagenesis [PDF]
Mutate E. coli K-12 genes with Tn5 Transposon. [updated 05/11/2002]


These are our protocols for preparing Neidhardt's MOPS-based defined media. These media are used for the global transcription analyses, and are now available commercially from TekNova Inc.
